Chocolate pancakes & pomegranate

By 27 March 2015No Comments

Well yes, I know, probably that the women’s press is already talking about weight-loss regimes in oder to become-the-most-beautiful-this-summer-on-the-beach, and me, in the meantime, I’m just tempting you with tons of chocolate.
Buuuuut, you know, it’s still cold outside, ths sun is shy and I have a great excuse: it’s almost Easter time, and you’ll stuff yourself with chocolate eggs anyway. (Notice how good I am at removing the feeling of guilt. Especially when it’s about sweets.)


With those pancakes, at the first bite, any man will be on board with you for breakfast (except in an hangover case, just avoid pancakes actually).
Those pancakes are not so thick and are fluffy as hell, just ready to absorb liters of Maple Syrup and a touch of acidity provided by the pomegranate.
And because I’m nice, I’m posting this just before the week-end, like that you have all the time needed to make those pancakes.
It’s all about sweetness after all!
